  1. I do the routine then take three swings with each stick and my driver maxing out and write down my highest for each. I was wondering if I was making progress so I charted them the other day and added the trend line so that gave me some motivation to keep going.

    2018 Masters Tournament Discussion Topic

    I went with the field and top 10. I think he will play well. I like his chances better than any one individual but I think he’ll come close but someone else will get hot and win. Should be fun though. And I’m excited for my first time I’ll get the opportunity to attend on sat. I hope he’s in contention.

Moreover, with every putt, players can see precise closeup views of the breaks between the ball and cup -- subtle changes in elevation and green direction that are often undetectable to the naked eye." Great, now my playing partners can check the slope of the green to decide how to funnel their ball to the hole.....99% of people are not good enough to have this be helpful, just slow them down. Seems like this tech offer the same info as the ones the pros use that are likely to be outlawed?

    Thanks Erik, I noticed that the practice motions looked good then on the hit the shaft did get much steeper. I’ll make that a focus.

    Thought I would post a couple pieces of practice to this thread with the main drill and feels I’m working on daily right now. Trying to eliminate a small flip and have better club face control. Working on keeping club outside hands going back, shallowing with right elbow leading going down then “hit it with my pivot”. So square club face that way as opposed to hands rolling over quickly. The “pump” is too big and I could stand to slow down a little more but heading in the right direction.

    Golf apparel for girls

    I’ve ran into similar issues finding clothes for my oldest daughters who are starting golf ages 10,9. I know you mentioned she needed to try them on, but I did have luck finding a few things (adidas, puma, under armour) on amazon. Couple I had to send back for new sizes but no biggie.
  7. These 4 are all on my bucket list. Enjoy! I’m hoping to pick one for a trip for my 40th bday next summer. I’m not sure if I’ll make a trip happen to play anywhere special this year but I’ll drive over to St. Louis to watch the pga champ which falls on my bday.

    Thanks for the note. That is helpful and confirms some of the feels I was going for. I’ll keep at it, keeping it simple and focused while confirming these checks. Thanks again.

    Working on a lot of the same pieces but trying to keep the idea simple in practice sessions. One drill right for now, slow backswing like I worked on when in Erie, slow down to A-6 with right elbow leading, small pump and finish to abbreviated, punch shot type finish. Going to do this daily for a while and keep working hard hitting indoors while the weather stinks outside.

    Posting goals in this thread too for easy reference and accountability. I'll get a fresh video in here soon. 2018 Goals Sub 4 handicap (Currently 7.6). I posted 14 scores last year, so didn't get to play a lot. Commit to evolvr for the year and practice the right way Swing Speed training 3x per week Practice my evolvr priority 3x per week Short game practice 2x per week Play 20 or more rounds for handicap (and get to the course more often to squeeze in a few holes) Play 2-3 tournaments where I play my own ball Track my stats

    I had the opportunity to visit @iacas in Erie and spend some time working on my game so I wanted to document my notes here for reference. I'm not going to put them all here, because there is a lot, but these are the main ideas. First of all, thank you Erik for your hospitality, I think we made a lot of progress and I have a good understanding of my swing now and the things I need to work on to get my scores down in the future. Here's my takeaways: Practice slower My tendency is to swing too fast when I'm trying to incorporate changes. Erik would tell me to swing at 50%, I'd try the move, and we both would agree that was probably more like 90%. So from now on, I really need to focus my practice sessions on working slowly to do the move right. Jason Dufner is my spirit animal Or he should at least be the swing picture I'm working towards, especially when referencing how compact his swing is and how his right elbow works The first day we spent most of the time working on my takeaway, getting the club to work more up...and then working on my right elbow starting down by moving towards the ball (not just down) and in front of me, in order to get the shaft to lay down. A lot of drills, slo-mo swings with a few training aids, etc.. Here is me exaggerating the feel on the takeaway: A before and after showing the right elbow concept As we were working on these two items, a couple of other issues started to clear up some without addressing them directly. I was keeping my head more steady as I started the downswing and I was retaining more secondary axis tilt. Also, my hands weren't rolling over so fast in the forward swing after impact. Here is where I'm hoping to get to in the backswing: We also spent some time working on my pitching the first day. I got a better feeling for the concepts from the instructional thread about pitching on the site. Practiced feeling the club fan open and under the plane a little and feeling gravity do a lot of the work to let the club fall back on the ball. Also touched on setup for these short shots. Day two we added in a couple setup tweaks: Also added a feel of keeping the chest pointed at the ground. This is me exaggerating but shows the feel of not retracting the right shoulder, this also helped shorten the swing and keep the right elbow in check. We made a couple of tweaks to the setup with the driver too. I was a little too tall and had the ball too far back in my stance. Later we worked on my putting and I thought this part was really cool. I seemed to do ok aiming my current putter, we made a small tweak but the main objective was to create a little overspin. Also, I had a tendency to have the putter accelerate slightly after impact. We worked on having the putter rise a little through impact with a little more forward press/shaft lean feel or "float loady" feel. I am glad I was able to make the trip and now more motivated than ever to try and make the changes necessary to improve.
